Not sure what you mean there. The feature is actually called "FPS Counter" and is in the "GamePlus" section of the OSD on the monitor. Asus marketing material mentions "the FPS (frames per second) counter lets you know how smooth the game is running."
Now if that is accurate or not (especially with G-Sync off, perhaps it is indeed stuck at the frequency) is debatable.
From the games I tried, it is indeed accurate. Last one I remember comparing was Asseto Corsa, which has built-in FPS. The numbers match pretty well. Other users came up with similar conclusions, for example, comparing FRAPS numbers with the Asus counter.
FRAPS is nice, but at this time, the built-in counter made it redundant for me. Less software to run.Edited by karlahoin - 2/10/16 at 12:59pm
